Canon: Work (Single)
Posted July 19, 2012
Canon is one of the most exciting artists in the Christian hip hop industry to me. I fell in love with his song "Bing Hampton" off his first mixtape, The Great Investment, and loved his parts on Lecrae's song "Blow Your High." Last October he released his second mixtape - his first with RMG - entitled Blind World. I really liked it at first, but after listening to it several times it quickly became old and was tiresome to listen to. However, I love his voice, flow, and lyrics, so I knew that he would probably bounce back pretty quickly with some more sick songs. He unexpectedly dropped his new single, "Work" this past Tuesday, which I automatically went and bought on iTunes. "Work" talks about just the daily life of Canon and trying to live for Christ. Since buying the song I have listened to it a bunch, and I have not grown tired of it yet. The song sounds a little different than some of the stuff he has done in the past, but it did not even take one whole listen through it for me to fall in love with the track. "Work" is a solid release form Canon, and I am highly anticipating an announcement of an upcoming album. Hopefully it will come out in 2012...hopefully. Definitely buy this song to tide you over until he releases the full album at some point, and check out the music video on YouTube as well.
